New Ford Racing Exhaust parts..hmmmm.

Got goofing around on the Ford Racing Performance Parts site, noticed a couple of new additions.

First up....duals for the 5.0L F150....145" WB. (Supercrew, 5.5 ft box) Suggested retail $1200

Sales blurb says T-304 stainless steel, dual rear exit with chrome plated "Ford Racing" embossed 4 inch exhaust tips.






Two different versions for the Raptor have me a little intrigued, same specs as the 5.0L, T-304 w/ 4" dumps. $1500 retail.

From what they've posted, sounds like I'd need an additional mid pipe with the one kit.

.......


No big secret I'm a big fan of Ford Racing stuff, I know some guys like Magnaflow or Flowmaster, but I'm pretty happy with anything FRPP has.

Anything I ever bought from FRPP for my Mustang (or the Raptor) was 100% satisfying as far as money spent goes.

Got this on the "maybe" list for spring, but need to do a little investigation first.

Just for interest, the 2013 Raptor wheels are available now as well.

Not a bad looking wheel, but $700 each and then $135 each for the beadlockers plus tax??? Um, nope, happy with the black ones I got thanks.

.....

Yah, ha ha , you called it, it's pretty much just a matter of deciding which one to get.

They're both priced the same, but I wonder if there's much difference (sound-wise) between the two individual units (Touring) and the single large unit. (Sport)

Reminds me of the X-pipe vs H-pipe debate I had with my Mustang - essentially did the same job, but with slightly different results.

The shorter the muffler the louder it is

Two of the kits look like they have a resonator on it, I wonder how it would sound if the that was replaced with a straight pipe

Totally forgot, but Borla makes the exhaust components for FRPP....the FRPP mufflers I bought for my Mustang were essentially Borla Stingers.

Did some youtube searching for Borla, but also caught a clip of a Raptor with MBRP exhaust that sounded pretty sweet.

Likely stay with Ford Racing though, (even if it is Borla)... bought some other brand stuff for my Mustang and regretted it.

I loved the Borla sound, that's why I said I'd stay with Ford Racing.

Some of the purist's bitch and moan because it's Borla re-branded as FRPP.

I started thinking as I was reading through that those look an awful lot like Borla. I was gunna open another page and cross reference the pictures, but kept reading and saw you confirmed my thoughts. Borla stuff is pretty pricey too.

I love their dual same side dump. Originally lightning style.


And I agree with Dave.

Mike when you booking it in to get done?

I should not have opened this thread

I will most likely just replace the Muffler again, on the 2012, like I did on the 2010. It got me the better sound I wanted for not to much cash

Those kits do look very nice though
